The Dark Side Of Chocolate
Child Trafficking And Illegal Child Labor In The Cocoa IndustryStreaming Video - 2010
Have chocolate manufacturers turned a blind eye to child trafficking and de facto slavery on African cocoa farms? This program investigates, following a trail of misery that begins at a confectionary trade show in Germany, continues on through the villages of southern Mali and the cocoa plantations in neighboring Cote d'Ivoire, and finishes up in Switzerland on the doorstep of one of the world's largest confectionary companies, a signer of the 2001 Chocolate Manufacturers Association agreement outlawing child labor-a document with which its suppliers were supposed to be in full compliance by 2008.
